    7. (Morning Prayers)

    Karagre Vasate Lakshmi Karmadhye Saraswati

    Karmule Tu Govindaha Prabhaate Karadarshanam

    Goddess Lakshmi is the symbol of wealth. Goddess Saraswati represents knowledge. Govinda is the God of Power. Hand is the symbol of human effort. So by placing the three divine powers on the tips, in the middle and at the base of the hand, this shloka suggests that all the divinity lies in human effort. Thus this shloka supports the need of human effort and self confidence.

    8 . Bath time:

    Gange cha Yamune chaiva Godavari Saraswati,

    Narmade Sindhu Kaveri jalesmin sannidhim kuru

    Meaning: In this water, I invoke the presence of holy waters from the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Saraswati, Narmada, Sindhu and Kaveri

    12. FOOD(MEAL TIME)

    Brahmaarpanam Brahma Havir

    Brahmaagnau Brahmanaa Hutam

    Brahmaiva Tena Gantavyam

    Brahma Karma Samaadhinaha In the term Brahmaarpanam the word Arpana refers to the long spoon. So Brahma is the spoon. He is also the oblation or Havis. He is the fire, the person who sacrifices, the sacrifice itself as well as the goal to be reached. That person who sees the Lord while doing the act is Brahma- karmasamadhina. This is possible by being happy in any action and getting only happiness in action. Sadhana is to enjoy every action, small or big--- Swami Chinmayananda

    13. Night Prayer (BED TIME)

    ramaskandham hanumantam |

    vainateyam vrikodaram ||

    shayaneya smarennityam |

    dusvapnam tasya nashyati ||

    Meditating upon Hanumanta, Bhima and Garuda before going to bed ensures a sleep without disturbing dreams.

    Suganghim Pushtivardhanam

    [The meaning of the Mantra is as follows:]

    I worship thee, O sweet Lord of transcendental vision (the three -eyed one or Lord Siva). O giver of prosperity to all, may I be free from the bonds of death, even as a melon (or cucumber) is severed from its bondage or attachment to the creeper.

    16 SLOKA ON RAMA

    Sri Rama Rama Rameti

    Rame Raame Manorame

    Sahasra Nama Tat Tulyam

    Rama Nama Varanane

    Lord Shiva told this shloka to Parvati I meditate upon Sri Ram as Sri Rama Rama

    Rama, the thrice recital of Rama’s name is equal to Recitation of the thousand

    names of Lord Vishnu (Vishnu Sahasranama)

    The Gayatri Mantra is a great source of inner strength and power. The Hanuman Chalisa is good too. Especially if recited on a Saturday it negates the ill effects of "shani" (planet saturn) in ones life.
